This long-awaited collection of essays consists of selected writings from Guggenheim Fellow Marlene Nourbese Philip’s wide-ranging appearances in magazines, newspapers, and journals, including FUSE. Biting, elegant, by turns fiercely questioning, magically lyrical, and gently probing, Philip’s examination of contemporary issues of race and culture is always eloquent and commanding.
